Hi all,
Delia and I birded up at Three Forks by North Bend today.? We had a nice?vocalizing Pacific-slope Flycatcher by the high school, but no other new-for-us migrants.? A couple Orange-crowned Warblers and Yellow-rumped?Warblers in a few locations.? Good numbers ofCommon Yellowthroats.?The Brown-headed Cowbirds appear ready for some FOYs.? Wood Ducks in three places.
I'm not well versed in the arrival data but I continue to hold my breath regarding Violet-green Swallows, of which we saw none out there.? We had?a few?Barn Swallows, some Rough-winged Swallows and decent numbers of Tree Swallows, but no V-gs.? Other than our own Violet-green Swallow pair?at the house here which arrived April 3, I've only seen? 3 or four in the city and very few as we bird around the west side.
Best wishes,
Ed Newbold
